Authors: Willey, Gordon R. (1913-2002) and Phillips, Philip  (1900-1994)

Pub Date: 1958 (First edition)

Binding: Hardcover

Condition: Fair.  I’d say the binding is still tight, even though there’s a cracked hinge at the title page.  Pencil markings throughout.  Previous owner’s name, date and locational information on front pastedown.  3 or 4 pages have small folds to lower corner.  Without dust jacket.  Light scuffing to covers, light edge and corner wear.

Notes: “The methods outlined in this study, and our arguments in their behalf, are predicated on two general theoretical assumptions: (1) That anthropology is more science than history, and (2) that the subject matter of anthropology is both society and culture….Archaeology, in the service of anthropology, concerns itself necessarily with the nature and position of unique events in space and time but has for its ultimate purpose the discovery of regularities that are in a sense spaceless and timeless.”  (From the Introduction)
